Kahoot! brings fun into learning, for any subject. Create a fun learning game in minutes You can make a series of multiple choice questions. The format and number of questions are entirely up to you. Add videos, images and diagrams to your questions to amplify engagement. 


Kahoots are best played in a group setting, for example, a classroom. Players answer the questions on their own devices, either through the Kahoot App on their phone or on their Laptop, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson. 


Practice makes perfect! With the challenge feature and the Kahoot mobile app, you can assign kahoots as homework. Students play kahoots on their phones for revision and reinforcement.

When you play Kahoot! in a group setting, questions appear on a shared screen and players answer on their devices. Check out the video below to see how to begin hosting a game. 

Create a kahoot to break the ice, re-energise a room, reward good behaviour or just have a little fun. Check out how to do more with Kahoot! by looking through the videos below.
